I am a Medically-trained Doctor, currently on the Advanced Public Health Training Program. I undertook my Medical studies, a Bachelor in Biomedical Science (Behavioural Science) and a Master of Public Health at the University of Birmingham in the UK. After a few years working in clinical Medicine and then in a Public Health Unit, I moved to beautiful Australia in 2011. My work since then has included involvement in the Seasonal D Study at NCEPH, and working in Chronic Disease Management at ACT Health. I returned to NCEPH in 2018, and currently split my time between analyzing the results of the Voluntary Blood Testing Program for Per- and Poly-Fluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) and working on the Master of Philosophy in Applied Epidemiology (MAE) Program.
